“Since the Advance My Track Challenge first launched in 2021, we have seen the enthusiasm and passion race fans across North America have for their local tracks,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and eCommerce. “It’s clear that tracks can use their prize winnings to truly make a difference and improve the overall experience for race teams and fans. We’re proud to be part of a program that advances the sport of local racing, and we look forward to continuing our efforts by crowning this year’s winning track.”

This year’s Advance My Track Challenge featured 25 NASCAR-sanctioned home tracks across the United States and Canada participating in the program’s first round of voting. 

Previous winners of the Advance My Track Challenge include Berlin Raceway (Grand Rapids, Michigan) and Jennerstown Speedway (Jennerstown, Pennsylvania). Berlin Raceway won the inaugural program in 2021 and used the $50,000 grand prize to build a new spectator deck and upgrade its main concession stand. Jennerstown Speedway was last year’s winner, and their winnings went toward the construction of a family friendly, ADA-compliant restroom facility.

Despite a tough commercial tire market in 2023 due to overstock and the effects of a rubber-banding supply chain, some tire manufacturers are expressing a cautious optimism for stabilization and gradual recovery through the rest of 2024 and into 2025.

"The economy is not showing signs that it’s going to slow down, but I don’t think the situation’s going to improve dramatically by the end of this year. It’s more likely next year," said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B products, at Michelin North America. "We can see the light because the beginning of 2023 was very bad. I think now we’ve found the bottom, and I don’t think we’re going to get much further from the bottom in 2024."
